There also must come a point where your Gmail storage is full, and you have to manually delete spam and unwanted emails from your mailbox to make space for the new important mails. It is one of the most irritating experiences anyone could have ever but to avoid all of that in the future, I unsubscribe from emails that I do not wish to receive in the future.

If you come across a marketing email that sends you promotional offers and marketing gigs every now and then and you do not wish to receive any more emails from this sender, you can simply block the sender and you will not receive any email from then on. All the emails that you will receive from this sender will go directly to your Spam folder in the mailbox.
